Trainers were able to quit a GO Battle League match after seeing their opponent.
Issue description: In the matchmaking screen, upon being matched with an opponent, Trainers were able to dodge a match with no penalty if they quickly closed and then restarted their application. Now, if a Trainer attempts to exit a battle after being matched, the battle will be counted as a loss unless the Trainer reopens the app and completes the battle.
Issue status: Mitigated in release (0.207)
